Note to all scanlators: If you recently started scanlating a new manga series (with about 5 or less chapters released) that's hosted on MangaHelpers, and would like your manga to be shouted out in the next New Manga Shout Out, then please PM me. Please include:
  1. The name of the manga series
  2. A summary of the series
  3. Publishing Status (+ Number of Volumes/Chapters)

This is what tethysdust said this week:
Quote:
I liked the emo suicidal vampire story, the relationship between the monster and the little kid was pretty cute. Also, fuyuu shoujo was really interesting. It seemed kind of a shame that all the kids were being taught that their superpowers were sicknesses that needed to be removed.
Here's a note from vyc:
Quote:
Lots of potential in this week's one shots.
Kuru Hane - Interesting so far. Want to see more of what special skills people in the company have. Cuisine la Princess - Demon inside a teenage girl with a gun? Pretty cool. Blend Blood - Pretty cool idea. Very good potential for series I think.

My opinion:
Balance Days reminds me a bit of Frogman. Although the idea of a demon eating another demon isn't new, I'd still like to check out Cuisine la Princesse. On the other hand, Fuyuu Shoujo sounds really cute~ I'd definitely wanna read Himitsu no Ichiban. It sounds hilarious~ Monster and Child sounds like a touching manga. If you like a gritty manga, you might like Rainbow.

Rainbow interests me, but apart from that I didn't really like anything else this week.. I'd be interested in translating Moster And Child though. ^^

It's a shame that you can't even really advertize those mangaka anymore.
And "you have to work a bit to find these mangas" got to be a joke, as the only info about some if not most of those manga/ka is from your site, which doesn't provide anykind of info besides the original webpage. What's up with presenting One-Shots, that are rarely translated, even less scanlated and 0,1% of the MH userbase will read due to some misterious circumstance? Sorry, but from the lack of comments I see no real point in that.

I really love to read One-Shots, but that doesn't make anybody happy. :)
